->'''Stewie:''' Brian, quick, grab some money.\\
'''Brian:''' (''picks up a handful of cash and stuffs it in his sides'')\\
'''Stewie:''' Y-you have pockets? Are you putting that in pockets? That's so cute.

In animation, a FunnyAnimal character might be shown [[HammerSpace reaching into their pockets to pull out any number of things]]. But if said character is a pants-less HalfDressedCartoonAnimal, or doesn't wear clothes at all, they might suddenly have pockets in their ''fur'' (or feathers, or scales) that they reach into. Humans or furless characters don't usually have this in animation, probably because it would be NightmareFuel for the viewer.

In RealLife, female marsupials would have this (though only around the stomach, of course). In cartoons, however, both males and females of all species may have them and keep things in them.

Related to {{Hammerspace}}. Not to be confused with FurIsClothing. Not to be confused with an AssShove, where the pocket in question is anatomically correct.



[[folder: Anime]]
* One of the Whitebeard Pirates in ''Manga/OnePiece'' has a zipper on his body that he can unzip and pull objects out of.

[[folder: Films - Live Action]]
* Franchise/{{Robocop}} has an internal weapon holster for his service pistol in his thigh that can slide out.

[[folder: Literature]]
* Justified in ''Literature/{{Genome}}'', since widespread use of genetic engineering allows people to modify their bodies so that "unused" cavities become small pockets to store weapons and important objects.
* In Creator/RobertAHeinlein's ''Literature/{{Friday}}'', this is actually the heroine's special ability. Getting stuff in and out of the pocket is actually pretty complicated, it's very small, and she can't do it herself.

[[folder: Newspaper Comics]]
* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'': In one strip, Hobbes feels himself to check if he's carrying money, but has nothing there where he's feeling.
* A one-time accomplice to a murderer in the ''ComicStrip/DickTracy'' comics was "The Pouch," who had been a circus fat-man until the circus folded. "The Pouch" subsequently lost a lot of body weight, which left many folds of excess skin around his neck. By adding snaps to the folds near his larynx, "Pouch" was able to conceal a handgun that a hitman had used to kill a snitch.

[[folder: Tabletop Games]]
* In ''Franchise/WorldOfDarkness'', the Vicissitude power (fleshsculpting - great for creating Body Horror and upgrading mooks) has this as MundaneUtility.

[[folder: Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'', WordOfGod is that this is how you [[VideoGameStealing pickpocket]] from bats and other enemies that can't be reasonably expected to wear clothing. Skin = "Nature's pocket". No word yet on how you steal skins themselves.\\
Though that may not be an example, considering the nature of the joke.
* In many video games, the character either has nowhere it to put his gear or can fit an absurdly large amount in the pouch.
* Played straight with ammo and grenades in most ''{{Franchise/Halo}}'' games, but averted in ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' and ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', where the player has visible ammo pouches.
* A DummiedOut plasmid in ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' called "Organic Pockets" would have allowed the player to store additional items in folds of his skin.
* This might be how the animal villagers in VideoGame/AnimalCrossing carry their items. As they are all [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal Half-Dressed Cartoon Animals]] (only wearing shirts) and they allude to having pockets (despite them being pantsless), this trope comes to mind. Now, how exactly do they fit giant isopods in their apparent pockets?

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* In the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales198'' episode ''The Bride Wore Stripes'', Louie pulls a tape recorder out of his non-existent pants pocket.

** Also in the episode "Brian In Love", Brian takes out a cigarette from inside his fur while seeing his shrink.
* ''WesternAnimation/PBAndJOtter'':
** In "Trading Places", Ernest finds a missing walkie-talkie in his so-called pocket.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'':
** In "Lost Mattress", Squidward puts a wooden spoon into his back pocket for "safe keeping".
* WesternAnimation/BugsBunny has been known to do this in some shorts, keeping his hands in his apparent pockets at his sides.
** His ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' protege, Buster Bunny also plays this straight, as [[HalfDressedCartoonAnimal he wears a shirt, but no pants]].
* Wakko from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' has been shown to pull things out of his apparent pockets.
** Everyone in the main cast is seen doing this in the opening scene, whether they wore pants or not.

* The eponymous characters from [[WesternAnimation/TomandJerry Tom and Jerry]] (especially the former) would sometimes be seen reaching into their apparent pockets for objects. One time when they both used this trope was in the episode ''Duel Personality''.
* Larry from ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTalesInTheHouse'' did this when trying to look for money in "Jimmy and Jerry are Rich".
* Miss Chatterbox from ''WesternAnimation/TheMrMenShow'' in the episode "Skyscrapers".
* A RunningGag on ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' is to have Kaeloo ask another character "Haven't you forgotten something?", only for them to feel their "pockets" and reply that they haven't.
** In the episode "Let's Play Gangster Poker", Kaeloo turns her "pockets" inside out to show Mr. Cat that she doesn't have any money.
